The Lethbridge Historical Society launched the Facebook Group that bears its name in 2011. The intent was to preserve, promote and share the colourful history of Southwest Alberta and Lethbridge in particular. Today the group has more than 16,000 members and is a tribute to the city's colouful past.
The members of the Lethbridge Historical Society have put together the definitive photographic account of this unique city. With more than 130 photographs, many of them seen here for the first time, Lethbridge: A History in Pictures offers a stunning portrait of this one-of-a-kind Alberta city and the country around it.
Lethbridge: A History in Pictures offers us a window into the past, showing life as it was then, and stirring in us the emotions of wonder and curiosity about those who have gone before us and the lives they lived.

Editorial Reviews

This is a great book! Lethbridge has a rich history for such a young city, and that story is beautifully told here through a century of photography.
— Sheila McManus, Professor of History, University of Lethbridge

Marcus Garvey said, "A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots." The Lethbridge Historical Society provides such an important service to the community — it gives us roots. Lethbridge is a dynamic place to call home and we've only just begun. As we set our eyes to the future, it is so important to look back and understand where we have been and we are as we chart a path for the future.
— Dana Inkster, filmmaker
